To share learnings and ideas on how communities can move to healthier food provision in supermarket shopping environments. The team is closely linked with research, and is focused on the practical elements of support for communities, such as partnership formation.
The Healthy Supermarkets Community of Practice is a group of practitioners working with supermarkets who come together to share learnings and ideas about creating healthier supermarket shopping environments. It was established by Healthy Greater Bendigo, based on high levels of interest in the Eat Well @IGA project, and the growing number of practitioners working with retailers for the first time. The Community of Practice includes members from local and state government, community health and research institutions from Australia and NZ, and aims to meet twice per year. We hope to grow the Community of Practice and look forward to working together to support healthier food environments in communities.
